THE ICONIC 1969 BAG
Recently relaunched as the 1969 bag, the original design features one significant update: a shift away from heavy steel to lighter aluminum with new lustrous finishes in sliver and pale gold. Consisting of 367 pastilles for the original size and 120 for the mini format, the assembly continues to be by hand.
As a signature product within the Paco Rabanne offering, this re-edition accompanies Julien Dossena’s runway collections and is available year-round in stores. Fifty years on, the bag gives off a distinctive, familiar swish in sound and feel. To some, it is considered a standout accessory; to others, a bag that doubles as jewellery; and to others still, a piece of design art worthy of display.
